Things that I bought in IMATS London : 22 June 2013

I had a few items on my wish list that I was planning to get at IMATS - Brushes from Hakuhodo and Crown brushes, Z palette, and a freedom palette from Inglot. And I am pleased to report that I was very much on target, and I didn't stray off track to buy anything extras.

I didn't get anything from Inglot because the booth was just too crowded. The show discount was not significant either.

Hakuhodo Misty Set (£95)

I am so excited! I spotted this set and I knew right away that was exactly what I wanted. Each Hakuhodo brush costs around £50 and upwards, my set was £95. It has 6 brushes and a zipped brush holder.

What I most love about them are all the brushes are pointed, they are directional. I found small pointed/tapered brushes are much easier to control than big fluffy ones.

Crown Brushes (£17)

They are reasonably priced but good quality brushes. So I bought a few of them.
2 x small tapered brushes for crease work in the eye
1 x small tapered face brush for powder and blush
1 x normal size fan brush for highlight
1 x cute little fan brush (so cute that I just needed to have it)

Z-Palette from Precious About Makeup (PAM) (£19.20)

Always wanted a Z-palette to house my MAC eye shadows. I have a big MAC palette, but their small palettes are always out of stock. These small & medium size Z-palettes are great for handbag & travel.
Aqua Yellow medium palette (£11.60)
Hot pink small palette (£7.60)

Total spending: £131.20

I am so pleased with my purchases - they are things that I have been wanting for a long time. Furthermore, I have not spent on anything unnecessary!!

What have you bought at IMATS? I would love to see your purchases!

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
